A hopeless funds, govt has no imaginative and prescient for Delhi: BJP

NEW DELHI: BJP’s Vijender Gupta, who is the leader of opposition in the assembly, slammed the Delhi government for a “hopeless budget”. Gupta claimed the government was only playing politics and had for the development of Delhi.
“In the past three years the money collected from environment compensation charge remains unspent. The government has not only failed to control pollution but also failed to utilise sustainable resources. The government is only focussed on playing politics, criticising the central government and LG, and trying to fool the people by making false promises,” Gupta said.

He added, “There are 950 Delhi government schools that do not have principals, there are 28,000 teacher vacancies, and other public welfare schemes like AAP canteen have failed to even take off.”

Gupta also said no new buses were added in the last three years.

Delhi president Manoj Tiwari also slammed the budget and said it was jugglery of statistics for the fourth year.

“The government has announced schemes without constitutional approval due to which ultimately the people will be disappointed. From working on pollution control to ration distribution, the budget seems to be concentrating on privatising the services. It seems the Kejriwal government now wishes to play the game of kickbacks in connivance with private companies,” Tiwari said.

“In his budget speech, the Delhi finance minister seemed less focused on budget proposals but more on heaping critical comments on the LG, giving another proof of this government’s anarchic way of working. The finance minister himself exposed the claims of government to open 1,000 mohalla clinics when he admitted that today even after three years, the government has been able to open 164 mohalla clinics,” Tiwari said.

He also said the people in the unauthorised colonies felt betrayed.
